Jharkhand tightens security in areas near LalgarhJune 18th, 2009 - 1:41 pm ICT by IANS
Ranchi, June 18 (IANS) Jharkhand has intensified police patrolling in areas bordering West Bengal following the killing of three Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) workers by Maoist rebels in the troubled Lalgarh region there, an official here said Thursday.
Jharkhand police suspect that Maoist rebels may sneak into the state when paramilitary forces launch an operation against them in neighbouring Lalgarh.
“We have increased vigil in the bordering areas. We are in touch with our counterparts in West Bengal,” police spokesperson S.N. Pradhan told IANS.
In the past week, Maoist rebels have killed 28 security personnel in West Singhbhum, Bokaro and Palamau districts of Jharkhand.
